    Default Wifi Adapter

    I have Windows 10 and when i turn the Laptop on it connects to the Internet. Then almost immediately the wifi drops and my wifi adapter is gone. I do repairs and repair as Administrator and it comes on. Sometimes it drops again very frustrating. Any ideas, Cheers.

    Do you have any other devices that are connected to your wifi network? If so do they work satisfactorily?
    If your wifi system is working properly for everything else you need to go into the settings on your laptop and make sure that they are still all correct.

    You can try going into the settings and reset the adaptor it may be corrupted.

    Type in search network reset, hit reset, it will wipe out the current adaptor and completely reinstall / rebuild it. ( will take several minutes)
